Michelle currently leads The Regional Municipality of York’s Office of Continuous Improvement & Customer Experience Innovation. Michelle brings a background in corporate communications, continuous improvement and expertise in strategic planning, facilitation, organizational culture and transformational change to the Board. Deeply committed to collaboration, Michelle has a deep-seated belief in harnessing the power of community to achieve meaningful connection and support positive change. Joining the Board in 2024, Michelle has been endlessly inspired by the organization and its impact on people’s lives. She feels humbled and honored to serve on the Board. In her personal time, Michelle loves to get outside with her family and her golden retriever and enjoy everything this beautiful area has to offer.

After 4 months of listening, creativity, small group conversations and A LOT OF COMMUNITY SUPPORT, the decision has been made. Within the next few months, Abbey Retreat Centre (ARC) will officially change our name to Brooksong Retreat and Cancer Support Centre.
